Last year’s beer was a bust, but we brought it back with Champagne yeast..
it’s back to life.


This year’s phone in. “Prune forward” is how I describe it.

Just bottled this brew. We got a chance to try the last few ounces and I must say this is our best beer yet.

This beer will be a chili infused beer. I wonder if I’ll get a chance to try it.

Sometimes I wonder about genes and what potholes I’m destined to smack right into.
Keep in mind that your eyes are tricking you, this is not a scanning electron microwhatever photo of one of my cells.

With Christmas in our faces Dan K and I bottled a pale ale flavored with rosemary and pomegranates.

Here’s a commission beer label in the “style” of the great Joseph Keppler. The label will wrap 2 cases of wedding porter. The happy couple decided to pick a date they swore they’d never forget.
CRAP! I just had a better idea for the label.. another one…another..
I should wake up before noon more often.

This beer is delicious. Dan has been calling it “Patrick’s Breakfast Stout”. It’s Grains, Maple Syrup, and Spicy Peppers. Didn’t make a whole bunch because it cost a mess ton.

“Coffee Stale”.. another quality product for Dan’s and my pleasure… and if anyone wants to try it, there’s still some left.



Bider (or Ceer)

Been making beer with Dan instead of the Liberties Brew Club. (I really want to make labels, and the LBC kids wouldn’t really let me)
We made a quick hoppy cider mess half with Kombucha.
Half of the “Bider” we made is undrinkable, wanna guess which?

This is the only new thing in my sketchbook. A moment of pure honesty in the form of graffiti presumably while I was using the john.
I got a million excuses, some are even valid.. but, short of death or dismemberment, is there really an excuse for neglecting one’s sketchbook (not to mention one’s blog)?
My commitments will be met. All the drawings and paintings I’ve promised people will happen. This is my first step.
I mentioned earlier that I joined a brew club. Here’s an instant label for batch 2, the IPA. We repurposed some beer bottles and didn’t bother taking off the original labels. I’m enjoying the visual history almost as much as the beer.




The label for Batch 1 (peppercorn brown ale) was a 23 minute jobber I threw together in case Jesse didn’t manage to make a label. Nobody told me either way.. turns out patrick eats poop all day.
